Winemaker’s Notes:

 

“Barbera is such a delicious wine, we are lucky to have this experiment to reclaim.

As a stand alone varietal it is one of the most acidic that I work with, the pH is extremely low, making for a wonderful food wine.

.

My first selection to pair with this wine is cheese, before all else.”

 

Dane Stark, winemaker



 

Tasting Notes:

 

The color of this wine is a deeper and more vibrant red due to medium to high acidity.

It opens with earthy fruit, a touch of floral  and medium intensity with a pleasing berry and soft tannin presentation.

The structure lends itself to aging and the fruit of the mid palate leads to a lengthy finish. The excellent structure provides for a wonderful food wine and this wine will pair beautifully with richer dishes. The finish mingles floral components and nuts with spice, herbs and roses.
